Default serpent 720 or kyosho v-one rrr evo

i can find parts for both easily, have the money, so what are the differences and what would be easier to build because it is my first on-road car kit

Default me too

i too am a begginer and i went with the RRR for one reason that it was easier to set up. the cars are both extremly fast when in the rite hands but the 720 offers to many options the more option the more you can fuck up and there are parts that must go on the 720, strait out of the box on the RRR is ready and very fast. So i say that you should go with the car you can get support with if there are a lot of kyoshos there then theres your car if there are more serpents then hey. prefrence and availability dont get a car you cant get help with espeasially since youre new to it!and buy the way wanna save some money pm me i may have some thing for you!

I should say both cars are very very good. Drive it right and both can win races no problem. 720 just like the RRR can go right out of the box, well of course it's a rolling chassis kit so you need the necessary equipments, motor, and electronics. But other than that you don't really need anything to make the 720 go out of the box. The 720 is a very competitive kit out the box in fact, right when it came out, 3 cars made the A-main and it won the Roar Nationals right off the bat on it's debut .

I drove both cars over the summer...I didn't get to set up the 720...but i did the rrr...I did not build either car......but just a hands on session,driving both,and seeing how they responded to changes,there was no question in my mind..the 720 is a great car,and will be my choice next year..

remember your not going to be able to drive like the pro's so you want something easy not a work in progress look how many average people drive both cars and in the worlds there were 90+ kyoshos out of 150 entries wonder why also the same person who won the sedan nats with the serpent 720 was winning the worlds with a v1-rrr wce evo go figure just my 15cents
